Website icon on Link tool bar

By natterjack ·
Dear all

When I first put a website to the Link tool bar, it appears to have the icon of the website but after sometime the icon automatically change back to the IE's default icon. How can I keep the icon of the website appear at Link Bar permanantly.

Thanks and regards

IE and web site icons

by Toivo Talikka In reply to Website icon on Link tool ...

If the file favicon.ico is on the website, the icon will be displayed in the location bar and the Favorites entry for the site. However, IE does not handle them well. The icons are cached in the Temporary Internet Files, and therefore you may see old icons, or, on the other hand, if you clear the temporary files, you may not see any icons at all.

If you try Firefox, you will see that the behaviour of website icons is much more stable.
